The "REAL" Polar Express in North Conway color film?

  1. Good afternoon, I am looking for a recommendation for a high speed
    color negative film. I will be shooting my Hexar RF with a 35F1.4
    (I suspect wide open) in the following locations using available
    light. Pictures of the kids in the train, getting on / off the
    train, in the "theatre" at the north pole, etc. What is a good
    film to get in the 1600 or 800 ISO range?

    In addition to the RF I will be taking the 10D with the 17-40F4 and
    a 50mm F1.4 with a 420EX flash unit (it works but just doesn't
    capture the mood).

    Thanks!
     
  2. Fuji Press 800
     
  3. Gerry. If for some reason you need to cancel this trip then give me a shout. I would love to bring my kids to the train but I have heard that it is hopelesly sold out every year.
     
  4. NPZ 800 is very good.
     
  5. Gerry...

    I would not hesitate recommending using Fuji 1600...shoot at 800 and process
    normally, it is an amazing consumer film.

    Best,

  6. Fuji NPZ 800 is fantastic film. I rate it at 650 and still have plenty of wiggle room with low light conditions. I've also had very good luck with Fuji 1600 rated at 1250.
     
  7. Thanks for the responses, Fuji it shall be. Rene it took 4 years of lottery trying before we hit the jackpot, I will send you an email with some ideas.

  8. same here. Bought Fuji NPZ 800 yesterday and stuffed it into my Konica Autoreflex T1 (M6 has Tri-X right now) and rated it at 650.
